Junior Sailing

Our Junior Sailing program is recognized on a local and national level. We’ve graduated sailors who have gone on to the Olympics and professional sailing careers.

The GPYC sailing staff are U.S. Sailing certified and dedicated to providing a fun, safe, and educational experience to junior sailors. The program’s goal is to foster a life-long appreciation for both competitive and recreational sailing. The GPYC Junior Sailing program is one of the few sailing programs that provides all equipment to its sailors. We have the generous support of the Yachtsman's Committee and the Grosse Pointe Youth Nautical Education Foundation to thank for this ability.


Grosse Pointe Youth Nautical Education Foundation is a program dedicated to promoting amateur sailing, maritime arts, education, water safety and community improvements. GPYNEF awards college scholarships every year to young sailors who have participated in a DRYA sailing program at any point.
